The Marder III tank destroyer fought on many fronts of World War II. Until the introduction of the 88mm guns, it was a very dangerous anti-tank weapon. Design of the Sd.Kfz. 138 Marder III Ausf. M was based on the chassis of the Panzer 38(t) Ausf. M with the engine placed in the middle of the vehicle. The armament was a German 75mm cannon with a supply of 27 rounds. The vehicle did not have a permanently installed machine gun. The MG 34 or MG 42 rifle was carried in the crew compartment as optional personal armament. The "M" version, like other Marder variants, did not have armor covering the crew compartment from above. Instead, there was a closure of the rear part of the crew compartment. In the years 1943-1944, about 975 units of this Marder III variant were produced. The full name of the vehicle was Sd.Kfz.138, Panzerjäger 38(t) mit 7.5cm PaK40/3 Ausf. M.
